“It is the LORD’s blessing that makes a person rich, and hard work adds nothing to it.”
Proverbs 10:22

Dear friends!

When a new week just started, it’s already Friday again. It’s good that the training proceeds, but it’s unbelivable how fast time passes.

Christoph has already been able to complete a few exams and if all goes well, he can complete the exams for the first of three mechanic certificates at the end of November. It is essential that pilots in remote areas are able to maintain their own airplanes. Therefore, it is very important to gather as much experience as possible in order to be able to work independently and safely later on.

Nina and the children have already made new friends and feel integrated. Tobias and Elia visit the preschool until December and they like it very much. They can already understand a lot of English, only when speaking, they are rather shy. Anyway, we already feel at home here.

Nevertheless, we are looking forward to the next steps after the training, even though most of our future is still uncertain. For us it is still a great challange that we have left everything behind and that we don’t really know what’s coming next. And meanwhile, our last belongings were sold at home and a return would mean a new beginning. But we know that God will take care of us and so it is a good and relieving feeling to be completely dependent on him. So far, he has provided for us. To experience God’s miracles, you have to create the opportunities and trust in Him.

A few days ago we talked to our mission organisation about our next steps. An interesting opportunity would be to move to Guatemala City for 1 year, after we’ve completed the mechanic training. There Christoph would work in a mission hangar and gain good experience. The there stationed Cessna 206 is the same aricraft model as used later in the bush. We could refresh our Spanish skills there and support to start a new project in northern Guatemala. Our Missionfield after that could be in Guatemala or Honduras. So if everything works out, we would be in Guatemala in one year already. But there is still much to clarify and who knows, maybe in a few months everything will be different. The way is unclear but the goal is the same: help people in need and to give glory to God.

Our preparation and later work are only carried by donations and own resources. We recently partnered with an Austrian missionary organisation “Hilfe die Ankommt/Help that Arrives”. This makes donations tax deductible(at the moment only in Austria, Germany and Switzerland). If you have it on your heart, we would be glad to receive your financial support to make our service possible.

Thank you for your support in prayer, financially or by encouraging words.

Your family Hochenburger

    Gesegnet ist der Mann, der sich auf den Herrn verlässt
    und dessen Zuversicht der Herr ist.
    Der ist wie ein Baum, am Wasser gepflanzt,
    der seine Wurzeln zum Bach hin streckt.
    Denn obgleich die Hitze kommt, fürchtet er sich doch nicht,
    sondern seine Blätter bleiben grün; und er sorgt sich nicht,
    wenn ein dürres Jahr kommt,
    sondern bringt ohne Aufhören Früchte.
    Jeremia 17:7-8

    Danke fürs Teilhaben ich lassen an eurem Leben, euren Gedanken und Plänen, liebe Nina und Chrisi!! Möget ihr noch viele Wunder erleben. Das stimmt komplett, was ihr sagt: wir können Gott erst übernatürlich erleben, wenn wir Ihm Raum dazu geben. Hier im Westen rechnen leider viele Christen oft nicht mehr mit Seiner übernatürlichen Kraft, und vertrauen oft mehr auf ihren Kontostand und Verstand… 😐
    Mit festem Schritt mutig und fröhlich voran! Ihr seid ein großes Vorbild! Viele stehen im Gebet hinter euch.
